List of Texans heading to the final year of their contracts in 2022

If the Texans exceed expectations, it will create a welcome headache for Caserio: Which players with expiring contracts deserve contract extensions?

Here’s a full list of Texans entering the final year of their contract in 2022 (figures via Over the Cap):
